A classic Karate Kid character makes an appearance in Season 5 of Cobra Kai. But who is Jessica Andrews? And how does she connect to Daniel LaRusso?

Cobra Kai is about the ongoing war between karate foes Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, and the battle between the kids in the respective dojos.

Along the way, characters from the Karate Kid films have appeared, including Daniel’s nemesis from The Karate Kid, John Kreese. His nemesis in The Karate Kid Part II, Chozen. And the man who caused him severe pain in The Karate Kid Part III, Terry Silver.

We’ve already established that Mike Barnes – another Part III villain – makes a cameo in Season 5. But an old love of that film also popped up midway through the series.

Who is Jessica Andrews in The Karate Kid Part III?

In The Karate Kid Part III, Jessica Andrews almost becomes Daniel LaRusso’s girlfriend, as she also finds herself embroiled in his drama with Terry Silver and Mike Barnes.

The film sees Mr. Miyagi opening a Bonsai Tree store, and Jessica – who moved to Los Angeles from Ohio – works in the pottery store across the road. Daniel has an immediate connection with Jessica when they meet and asks her out on a date.

Pictures of Colombia

Ralph Macchio as Daniel and Robin Lively as Jessica in The Karate Kid Part III.

However, the course of love does not run smoothly, as pretty much every time they get together, karate bad-boy Mike Barnes seems to cause trouble, fighting Daniel, punching Jessica and even threatening to kill them during a rendezvous while rappelling.

Their short-lived romance ends when Daniel breaks a guy’s nose at a club, after which they decide to be friends, and Jessica moves back to Ohio.

How does Jessica Andrews fit into Cobra Kai?

Jessica was upset by Daniel’s temper and his use of violence in The Karate Kid Part III. And his wife Amanda feels the same way in season 5 of Cobra Kai, so much so that she needs a break, so heads to her hometown in Ohio with the kids.

There, she goes to a bar with her cousin, who happens to be… Jessica! It turns out that when Amanda moved to Los Angeles, Amanda hooked her up with Daniel, and the rest is Cobra Kai history.

The couple have a heart-to-heart over drinks, and Jessica suggests that Amanda give Daniel some slack regarding Terry Silver, explaining that he did a “real number” on her husband, and that Daniel perfectly right to hate the nasty ponytail.

They also get into a bar fight, in which Amanda’s daughter, Samantha, saves the day. But that’s all we see of Jessica, so she never shares scenes with Daniel.

Who plays Jessica Andrews in Cobra Kai?

Robin Lively played Jessica Andrews in The Karate Kid: Part III, and she’s reprising the role in Season 5 of Cobra Kai.

Lively is best known for playing the titular character in the 1989 teen comedy Teen Witch, during which she witnessed a memorable – and now infamous – rap (see below).

Lively was a child star who appeared in bands like Punky Brewster, Silver Spoons and 21 Jump Street, before landing the recurring role of Lana Budding Milford on Twin Peaks.

Her highest-profile project since then has been the 2014 horror film Ouija, while Lively has continued to do television, appearing on shows like 30 Rock, Psych and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Lively recently played Sara Bellum in the Powerpuff TV pilot – a live-action sequel to The Powerpuff Girls – but the series has yet to be greenlit.

Cobra Kai Season 5 is available to stream on Netflix now.

At first glance, Norbert Schoerner’s photographs look like studies of individual pines standing out against an arid, mountainous landscape of rolling peaks and dark cloud formations. However, closer inspection reveals something unusual. Instead of being rooted in the ground, the trunks of the pines end in receptacles reminiscent of the ceramic bowls generally used for the cultivation of bonsai.

The image’s apparent logic – that foreground and background depict a connected space, a cohesive reality – is fractured.

The bonsai in Norbert Schoerner’s photographs were grown by the Abe family who live in the Azuma Mountains near Fukushima. For three generations, these masters – Kurakichi, his son Kenichi and his grandson Daiki – have been growing bonsai from seed. They use seeds from trees that can only be found in the shadow of volcanic Mount Azuma-Kofuji. To create these photographs, Schoerner climbed the mountain and took a series of landscape photos. Placed in front of large-format prints of these images and photographed in the right light, the miniature pines of the Abe family look like full-grown trees.

By photographing bonsai trees in a constructed diorama environment, the artist seems to take the plants back to their origins so they can reach their true growth potential.

This visual event combines different chronologies: The topographic formation of Mount Azuma-Kofuji over several geological eras, the life cycle of a bonsai which can span centuries, the exposure time of a photograph, and finally, the independent existence of this image. in the future. However, it is impossible to see these works without taking into account the ecological effects of the disaster that occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on March 11, 2011. The exhibition offers a direct confrontation with the destructive consequences of this event, and with the attempts humanity to use and control nature for its own ends.

Norbert Schoerner (born in 1966) is a German photographer and filmmaker who has lived in London, his favorite city, since 1989. His professional career began with commissions for The Face magazine in the late 1980s. major publications such as Vogue, NY Times and iD, he began photographing campaigns for brands such as Yoji Yamamoto, Prada, Shiseido and Comme des Garçons. Since his first trip to Japan in 1992, Norbert Schoerner has been going there regularly, sometimes for several months in a row.

Landscape architect Todd Longstaffe-Gowan’s new book is, as befits his subject, a glorious cabinet of curiosities. Covering a wide selection of idiosyncratic gardeners and their equally singular gardens, it spans from the early 17th to the early 20th century, taking into account many more bizarre features of the English landscaping tradition.

Longstaffe-Gowan eschews too many definitions, preferring a rambling profusion of strangeness and incongruity. The precise nature of the eccentricity proves impossible to pin down – he describes it as “playful budding madness”, which doesn’t sound like much fun – but the gardens included here demonstrate a stubborn dedication to whimsical flights of fancy. Among the many delights are hermits, goldfish, druids and gnomes.

The first subject of the book is Thomas Bushell, a 17th century mining engineer who created an extravagant underground water garden on his estate in Enstone, Oxfordshire. Contemporary accounts and plans reveal a fantasy of artifices built into the rocks, combining the taste for historical landscaping and the latest hydraulic technologies. Bushell’s garden also contained an Egyptian mummy given to him by Queen Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I, as well as an early example of an ornamental hermit.

The fashion for hermits peaked in the late 18th century, when they became particularly associated with the “Picturesque” aesthetic popular in garden design, with its carefully planned asymmetry and taste for solitary figures that valued perspective. In the mid-1700s, Sir Rowland Hill of Hawkstone Park in Shropshire, had a mechanical hermit in a purpose-built cave, of which one visitor remarked, “When you ask him questions his lips move and he responds hoarsely, coughing as if almost exhausted.

There are recurring themes in English garden eccentrics — a taste for miniaturism, for example. The 19th century passion for rock gardens saw alpine grandeur squeeze into much smaller spaces. In 1838, Elizabeth Broughton of Hoole House in Cheshire made a glacier bonsai, a model for the Mer de Glace, near Chamonix, using shrubs to represent trees and ground white spars to look like snow. Sixty years later, Sir Frank Crisp of Friar’s Park, near Henley, erected a mini-Matterhorn made from thousands of tons of York gritstone. At night, electric lights illuminate Crisp’s theme park with animal models, caves, and faux lakes.

The book also covers topiary, in all its weirdness – and among the many delights of the illustrations are engravings of London churchyard yews once cut into fantastical patterns. However, the fashion for forcing nature into unnatural forms was not always popular: Alexander Pope believed it to be an indication of “common taste”. Victorian naturalist Charles Waterton, went the other way, preferring what we would now call controlled rewilding on his Yorkshire estate, building ivy-covered towers for owls and turning his lake into a wild bird sanctuary.

Most of Longstaffe-Gowan’s gardens are large enough to support a crazy vision – and its eccentrics quite wealthy. But small projects are also intriguing. In the 1760s, for example, the great antiquarian William Stukeley managed to fit into his modest country retreat in Kentish Town a grotto, hermitage, Druid walk and mausoleum.

English garden eccentrics is a compilation of pleasantly singular case studies, but if there is one overarching theme, it is that in gardens we find reflections of human desire. They are, as Longstaffe-Gowan says, autobiographies of their owners. Perhaps the examples he highlights also represent an ineffable sense of loss – of localism, folklore and myth – produced by an age of science. When in 1847 Sir Charles Isham filled the stone caverns of his estate with terracotta gnomes and elven blacksmiths, he was not only making a fairytale theme park, he was trying, in his own way, to stem the tide of modernity.

English garden eccentrics: Three hundred years of extraordinary groves, burrows, mountains and menageries by Todd Longstaffe Gowan Yale, £30, 400 pages

A trailer for the next Magic: The Gathering expansion, Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty, shows off the kit’s Japanese-inspired cyberpunk cityscape.

A brand new launch trailer for Kamigawa: The Neon Dynastya cyberpunk expansion for Magic: The Gathering, reveals a bright and exciting neon. The beloved trading card game, created by Wizards of the Coast, traditionally uses a fantasy setting filled with warriors and wizards. However, the long-awaited Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty set for Magic: The Gathering will instead present a world full of looming skyscrapers and tech ninjas.

While the cyberpunk aesthetic of Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty is quite original, the Japanese-inspired world was actually introduced to Magic: The Gathering in 2003. The original version of the kit however did not have the futuristic theme, but instead was directly inspired by ancient Japan and its mythology. The new setting was popular with fans, but the new mechanics introduced in Kamigawa were less well received. Kamigawa’s new iteration seems to stay true to that classic release, showcasing old-school concepts like samurai and dragons while giving them a modern tech twist. Despite the expansion that took place 2,000 years after the original set, Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty ninjas and ninjutsu ensure that the fan-favorite frame is always recognizable.

A new Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty trailer, revealed by Magic: The Gathering on YouTube, demonstrates the combination of the expansion of tradition and modernity. As a narrator discusses the relationship between the past and the future, a bonsai tree is revealed to be a complex hologram. Kamigawa’s sci-fi Undercity then pops up around the tree, with various inhabitants frozen in the middle of intense action. Twin dragons swirl across the sky, revealing a sword-wielding samurai to wrap up the trailer. Magic: The Gathering’s Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty the expansion is now available to explore.


Magic: The Gathering allows players to assemble a large deck of different characters, and Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty will add even more color to this list of cards. For example, an overview of Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty Blade-Blizzard Kitsune features quirky mechanics and utilities that players can expect to encounter. The deadly fox ninja is capable of performing ninjutsu, allowing him to replace an unblocked attacker on the battlefield, and his unique design demonstrates the beauty of Kamigawa.

Kamigawa: The Neon Dynasty will come back Magic: The Gathering fans to the Japanese-inspired fantasy world. While the cyberpunk landscape is quite different from the classic 2003 Kamigawa, the new cinematic trailer shows how the expansion will marry tradition and innovation. Cyborg ninjas and holographic bonsai trees will create a truly unique aesthetic for the all-new Magic: The Gathering together, which is available now.

The pomegranate is an exotic fruit that dates back to antiquity. In Persia they were used as a carpet dye and in India they were considered a symbol of fertility, probably because the fruit is filled with hundreds of small fruits inside the membrane. In fact, the scientific name, Punica granatum, translates to “seeded apple”, the name given to the fruit in the Middle Ages. Spanish settlers and missionaries brought pomegranates to California.

Pomegranates make an excellent ornamental landscape tree in the San Joaquin Valley. They are very heat tolerant and can survive in alkaline soils which would kill many plants. They have many uses, such as hedges, shade trees, fruit trees, potted plants, and even bonsai. There are many cultivars to choose from, whether you need them for a container or a full-sized tree. What if you don’t want to deal with fruit? They have that covered too. There are beautiful pomegranates with double flowers that do not fruit.

Standard grenades form round shrubs deciduous or multi-branch trees up to 20 feet tall. While the varieties tested are “Wonderful” and “Granada”, there are now many new varieties for sale that are marketed as “seedless” or “soft seeds.” Although they still seeds, they are very soft and edible. The new varieties should be available in your favorite nursery. If it does not, ask them to order it for you. The University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources has a page of resources on the grenade, with a list of varieties suggested for backyard orchard here: https://homeorchard.ucanr.edu/Fruits_&_Nuts/Pomegranate/

Dwarf pomegranates make excellent container plants and can be used as bonsai trees. There are several varieties, such as ‘Chico’, which are unsuccessful. ‘Nana’ and ‘Purple Sunset’ will bear small fruits that can be used in many arts and crafts projects.

Non-fruiting pomegranate varieties are ‘California Sunset’ with double coral flowers, ‘Toyosho’ with double peach flowers, and ‘Noshi Shibari’ with double white flowers. These are all very showy, and because they don’t set fruit, the flowering time is much longer. I have California Sunset, and I must add that the flowers are huge and the hummingbirds love it.

Plant pomegranates in the warmest, sunniest location for the best, sweetest fruit, but they will also survive partial shade. New trees should be cut to a foot tall when they are about two feet tall. From this point, allow 4-5 shoots to develop, which should be evenly distributed around the short trunk to maintain the balance of the tree. Since the fruits are only borne at the tips of new shoots, it is recommended to shorten the branches every year for the first 3 years. This will encourage the maximum number of new growth from all sides and help develop a strong framed tree. After the third year, only suckers and dead branches are removed.

New trees need enough water to establish themselves. Regular watering promotes fruit development and reduces thorns. Mature trees only need to be watered once every 2-3 weeks during the summer, and if it rains in the winter, there is no need to water at all during the winter. The flowers develop on new shoots each spring and the fruits ripen in the fall.

Pomegranates have the usual problems with aphids, whiteflies and mealy bugs; however, lady beetles and predatory lacewings also lay their eggs on the leaves, helping to control these pests. A moth called the omnivorous leaf roller may be a pest in our area. The larvae feed on the crust, causing damage. After entering the fruit, they feed on the seeds until pupation. Weed control can reduce insect population and spraying Bacillus thuringiensis (an organic pesticide that targets worms) also helps. Fortunately, there is usually enough fruit for both the home gardener and the moth to enjoy.

Pomegranate is self pollinated as well as insect pollinated. Cross-pollination increases fruit set, so encourage any birds, bees and butterflies that are attracted to these bright scarlet flowers by not spraying pesticides unless absolutely necessary.

So this is it. Large ornamental small trees that like the sun and the heat, have scarlet flowers to attract birds in summer, and autumn colors and fruits in addition.
